about the artist
haley brown is a mixed-media visual artist known most widely for her annual “Coping Calendar,” currently in its fifth season. She works with traditional materials — watercolor paint, pencil, collage, and pens — scanning and editing her work digitally. Much of haley’s work is driven by a desire to put more gentleness into the world.
A queer, Disabled artist, haley began creating self-portraits as a way of reclaiming her body from the medical gaze in her early twenties. She continues to explore body, Disability, nature, and inner-worlds in her work (alongside a healthy dose of silliness and whimsy).
Depending on the season, haley is available for commissions, collaborations, and vending at events. She is based in Santa Cruz, CA on occupied Popeloutchom (Amah Mutsun land).
